88 Field Street
Durban, South Africa


HEIGHT: 147m
FLOORS: 26 floors
COMPLETION: 1985
ARCHITECT: Helmut Jahn


It has been the tallest building in Durban since 1986, even though others with more floors have been built, the spire has kept its position. However by 2007 it will lose its position to the 185m Pearl Sky building.

Well One Canada Place is another favourite of mine, but personally I like 88 Field better. The only problem is its height, if it were taller I think many people would rate it higher. I however give it a 9/10. :)

Its Durban's best example of alien architecture

i hear alot of comments about how u think the top could be better...i what way do you think that it could be changed to be better? And what is presently wrong with the top?
